Another ghastly colour to cover pasty white legs! Not quite “oompa loompa “ but just as sexy. Not sure if they were one of the most memorable pieces of clothing from the 1970s. No need to worry about the fashion police in these days, as wearing brown with any colour is not a problem, in fact it is a must. But brown?
I love the fact that the girls would come in with their 1970s school uniform, but they would take fashion liberties by wearing these chocolate brown tights that just was enough of a neutral colour not to get the teachers too annoyed, and for the girls to stay in touch with 1970s fashion for school.
Another real good thing about the chocolate brown tights is that they never really did show the dirt, so could be worn perhaps for a few days too long. No marks or mud to tell how long they were really being worn. Of course taking them off for PE may have given away if they had been worn too long, if you know what I mean?
The tights were a great wear. As for the boys it would still show the shape of the leg, and would of course keep the guys always attracted to watching the legs of the girls when they came in for morning assembly.
